ICC June - Pati Shapta

For this month's Indian Cooking Challenge (ICC), Valli chose a Bengali dessert usually made during the Sankranthi season. I have missed quite a few ICC challenges but when I saw this scrumptious dessert, I knew I had to make them.
I thought Pati Shapta were Indian version of French crepes that are filled with delicious coconut-khoya filling and drizzled with sweet syrup. They were easier to make than the French crepes and the filling was to die for. We thoroughly enjoyed these and the reheated leftovers taste just as good.

Recipe adapted from Sandeepa's recipe @ Bong Mom's Cookbook.
Ingredients: Makes 5-6 servings
For the Crepes:
All-purpose Flour - 1/3 cup
Semolina/ Rava - 2tbsp
Rice flour - 3tbsp
Sugar - 1tbsp
Milk - 1cup

For the Filling:
Grated coconut - 1cup (I used frozen)
Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Khoya - 1/2 of 12 oz. block, thawed

For the Sauce:
Evaporated milk - 12 oz. can
Sugar - 1 1/2 tbsp
Method:
  • Make the Filling: Thaw the frozen coconut & khoya. In a pan, add all the filling ingredients and cook on medium flame, stirring frequently until the mixture is cooked and is thick. Set aside.
  • Make the Sauce: In a small saucepan, add the evaporated milk and sugar. Simmer the mixture until it reduces to half of the initial volume, about 5 minutes.
  • Make the Crepes: In a medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and slowly add the milk to form a not too thick or not too thin batter. 
  • Heat a small non-stick saute pan, add ½tsp ghee and pour about ¼cup of the batter, swirl the pan around to make sure that the batter is evenly spread on the pan. Cook on medium flame until the edges start to curl up and the top starts to dry up. Slowly flip the crepe and cook on the other side until lightly browned and cooked through.
  • To Assemble: Place 2tbsp filling in the middle of a crepe, fold it up, griddle with the sauce and ENJOY!!
